Boys…I love them and I’ve got a house full of them. 3 sons, a hubby, and a collie.
All these boys make plenty use of the bathroom, and while my husband has decent bathroom etiquette, my potty trained preschooler and not yet potty trained toddler make plenty of messes, generously covering the floor and toilet with pee through various methods.
My “potty trained” infant also periodically offers his own libation when I’m holding him over the potty and, failing to get him angled correctly, his “you know what” resembles more of a high pressure water hose than a “you know what.”
Needless to say, all of this pee gets stinky. And is generally nasty.
I have scrubbed and scrubbed, wiped, sprayed, disinfected…you name it and for the life of me I could not get of lingering pee smells. It was driving me nuts.
But then….with the help of some other moms, I finally discovered a solution that works!
Nature’s Miracle Orange-Oxy Stain and Odor Remover!
Yes, this is a pet store product, but the same stuff that breaks down enzymes in pet urine does wonders on the stuff my boys produce. I attacked our main level half bath the other day with Nature’s Miracle, and FINALLY, the pee smell has dissipated. The solution was able to get into the cracks and crevices of the floor and bottom of the toilet, taking care of all the ickiness that I couldn’t reach with my other cleaning supplies.
I almost jumped for joy….yes, it doesn’t take much to amuse me these days. I can now attack toddler potty training with newfound enthusiasm, no longer fearing the extra doses of pee that will be offered up to all surfaces in my bathrooms.
So, what has worked for you to get rid of ickiness left in the boys’ wake?
